Big Cities, Big Dreams

We check in with Germans living in major cities around the world, who’ve each gone abroad for their own personal reason. But will their dreams come true in their new homeland?

Some 160,000 Germans emigrate every year, and the number of people who go abroad for a limited period of time is even higher: perhaps on an exchange program, as a visiting professor or a research project. Some accept the offer of a job overseas, others are in search of adventure and decide to head for the great unknown. All these people have exciting stories to tell and they all experience ups and downs. We feature them in our new docusoap Big Cities, Big Dreams as we accompany people who have left Germany to begin a new life elsewhere. We take a look at their everyday lives and the prejudices and problems they encounter. We get to see cities that we thought we already knew quite well in a totally new light. This fifteen part series features 28 different protagonists in Honolulu, Cape Town, New York, Phnom Penh and other far-flung destinations.

Judith in Edinburgh.

Judith in Edinburgh.

In this last episode Valentin gets closer to his dream: his own wild animal farm in Botswana. Big cats of all species will find a home here. Now that he has got his work permit, he can finally get going. In Edinburgh, Kerstin and Judith are turning their hobby into their job and starting their own baking business. Sports student Laura is undertaking a 4-month work experience on an equestrian finca on Majorca. Her job, and biggest challenge, will be to get young horses used to humans and start breaking them in.
